Jim Weichert, chairman and CEO of the Weichert Companies, announced that James Weichert Jr. has been named president of Weichert, Realtors, one of the largest family-owned-and-operated real estate companies in the nation.
“I am pleased to see James take the next step in his career and continue in the tradition of our family business,” said Weichert. “I am confident that his core values, deep knowledge and keen judgment will lead to the continued success and growth of our company, our colleagues and our sales associates, while providing the greatest service for our customers.”
Along with his father, James will also continue to serve in his current position of co-president of the Weichert Companies, a family of more than 15 real estate, financial services, workforce mobility and affiliated service businesses.
